Hi there, well should be positive, but it can be that this is a software-issue. Anyway, I would expect as condition "excellent" or something like this. I would go to an Apple Store and let them check.

Of course, the performance of the battery depends on the "stress" of the computer: while just surfing internet the battery will last much longer than while rendering a movie with FinalCut Pro 🙂

Hi there, first of all let's see the status of the battery. You can start to have a look here: Determine battery cycle count for Mac notebooks - Apple Support or use a 3th part application like this one: https://itunes.apple.com/app/battery-health-monitor-stats/id490192174?mt=12

Anyway, being such a new computer, I think it's better to schedule an appointment to an AppleStore or a support center.

Gentangar thank you.

This is the result on battery cycle.

(Odd that Amperage (mA) is negativ or should it be negative ?


Health information:

Cycle Count: 10

Condition: Normal

Battery installed: Yes

Amperage (mA): -1387

Voltage (mV): 11273


Thank you.
